Hooray its SUMMER!

Hey, its the first day of SUMMER!!!! Of course here in GA its been summer for at least a month but we'll celebrate anyway! Forecast for today is sunny and 97 degrees...How's that for a summer kickoff? I'm always up for anything cool and fun during these hot summer months so heres one for you........

This is pretty cool and fun!

It takes less than a minute .
Work this out as you read ...
Be sure you don't read ahead until you've worked it out!

1. First of all, pick the number of times a week that you would like to have chocolate (more than once but less than 10)

2. Multiply this number by 2 (just to be bold)

3. Add 5

4. Multiply it by 50 -- I'll wait while you get the calculator.

5. If you have already had your birthday this year add 1756 .... If you haven't, add 1755.

6. Now subtract the four digit year that you were born.
You should have a three digit number

The first digit of this was your original number (i.e., how many times you want to have chocolate each week).

The next two numbers are .......

YOUR AGE! (Oh YES, it is!!!!!)

Hooray for summer!!

Hello Jada,
Thanks for visiting my blog...I don't really like chocolate (ok, I know that's strange but I really don't) I'm more of a jelly belly and licorice kind of gal :)
I did try this chocolate math and went with the lowest number which was worked! This is pretty cool and I'm going to share it with everyone I almost all of them love chocolate :)

By the way, I used to live in Columbus, GA (Ft Benning) 1982-1986
I did get used to the heat but not the humidity...
Talk about HOT! It's 103 degrees in Paso Robles, California today where I live...and 30 degrees cooler on the coast which is just 30 minutes away. I think I'll take a drive west for about 30 miles :)
